Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

12/4 - Surgery Update - Monday 8:30AM

Monday morning update on son #4’s surgery.

Day of surgery;

We had to be at the hospital at 6AM this morning, and of course got
to bed late, and of course we didn’t sleep any, so of course we’re
pooped already. We talked to both surgeons this morning and the
anesthesiologist who assured us that everything would be fine. The
plastic surgeon said that they would take bone from the thickest
part of the skull, split it, and replace the bone on the left side of his
head where the old bone is dying. We’ve heard anything from “A
couple of hours” to 5 hours. So, we’ll just hang out here in the
waiting room and see what happens. We had some priesthood
blessings last night and (at least I) feel a bit more peaceful about
the whole situation.

I’ll keep you updated when we find something out.

    Putting our kids' lives into the hands of a surgeon is one of those supreme acts of faith.

    I pray this surgery is successful. I pray for your family's faith.
